“A great location, but”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

Right on the sea-front and looking attractive this should have been an ideal place for an evening meal. The service was atroscious, which detracted from the excellent quality of the sea-bream in salt. We cancelled the pasta which they wanted to serve after the main course.

“Ideal place for relaxing”
Reviewed September 19, 2011

You can't do much better in Bordighera if you are looking for a relaxing evening than go to the Alcione. Not right on the beach, but situated on the Lungomare (which is a pedestrian zone) where the evening corso of the locals takes place. Nice food of reliable quality, appealing wine list. Amiable service. If they'd change the menue more frequently, the place would be top notch.

“We loved it. Good food and very friendly service”
Reviewed June 14, 2011

One of the best places to go along the seafront. We have been there several times and each time we were really impressed. Some of the others (opposite) are awful.

“A pleasant surprise”
Reviewed October 23, 2009

Truly, this is not a restaurant. I could call it a wine bar, a beach bistro even though it is not directly on the beach. Still, it is a wonderful place that I patronized several times. Food is original and of excellent quality, the wine list is impressive and you get a real good and professional advice if you need. On top of that, they have an extensive list of grappas, some of them being outstanding.
The location of L'Alcione is excellent, right on the seaside in a pedestrian strolling way where you get an unblocked view of the sea. They have very pleasant outdoor seating as well as indoor. You always feel welcome and they let you enjoy your meal, your wine and, may be, your grappa almost as long as you wish since nobody is going to push you out. I'll keep going there every time I am in the area.
